The English Premier League finally restarted last Friday as Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by newcomers Brentford.

Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard were on target for Brentford, who are making their first ever appearance in the English Premier League.

The defeat took the Bees to the top of the table temporarily but at the end of the weekend, it is Manchester United who are sitting pretty at the helm.

Bruno Fernandes picked up where he left off last season, scoring a hat-trick to inspire his side to a 5-1 demolition of Leeds United.

Mason Greenwood and Fred also scored a goal each to ensure that United are ahead on goal difference. 

Last season’s Champions League winners Chelsea are hot on their heels after they also cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory against Crystal Palace. 

Marcos Alonso and Cristian Pulisic scored in the first half before youngster Trevor Chalobah added another on his debut to confirm all three points.

Mohamed Salah became the first and only player to ever score on five consecutive opening day fixtures in a 3-0 win against Norwich.

Salah scored and set up two goals as his man of the match performance condemned returning Norwich to an opening day defeat.

Jamie Vardy also began the season with a magnificent goal to gift Leicester a 1-0 victory over Wolves at the King Power Stadium.

Watford were the only newcomers to mark their return to the top flight with a victory as they battled to a 3-2 win against Aston Villa.

Villa’s new signing Danny Ings scored from the penalty spot in the 97th minute in his first game for the club.

The last game of the weekend was arguably the biggest one yet and Tottenham Hotspur pulled out all the stops as they beat champions Manchester City 1-0.

Son Heung-Min scored a wonderful goal to give Nuno Espirito Santo a winning start as Spurs manager and all three points, leaving them in ninth place.
